Diary of a Young Naturalist by Dara McAnulty

Sevenoaks 2020 Book of the Year


‘In a year where the consolation of nature has never been so important to me, and our damaging effect on the environment never so apparent, I was incredibly moved by how brilliant this book was – irrespective of the author’s amazingly young age.’

Winner of the 2020 Wainwright Prize for Nature Writing




‘Diary of a Young Naturalist’ chronicles the turning of 15-year-old Dara McAnulty’s world. From spring and through a year in his home patch in Northern Ireland, Dara spent the seasons writing. These vivid, evocative and moving diary entries about his connection to wildlife and the way he sees the world are raw in their telling.
